Global problems are city problems. If we work to fix them at the city level we can enact global changes. We need a participation revolution at the city level. Alessandra Orofino shows that it can be done, and argues that it has to be.
would love to see this in my city Cluj - environment concious people volunteer in their building to put up info in the common area about city recycling special collections etc. and organize some recycle and reuse programs in the buildings they live in - great ideas include seasonal clothing drive, book exchanges...who knows maybe a community compost bin if space allows and little garden section or promoting balcony gardening???
Green Bin - program of residents program of compost collection from residents - doesn't go into a landfill and accounts for approx of a residents waste - the compost is then available for the city residents for their gardens
